Malcolm Toogood has been a writer for most of his life, entering the publishing industry directly after leaving technical school in 1967. Over the next twenty-five years, he worked as a technical author on various projects for blue-chip companies. These included military publications for the UK army and navy, aerospace projects including Concorde, and manuals for complex industrial production equipment.
In 1990 he formed his own technical publications company, and over the next fourteen years developed that into a small multi-national group with offices both here in the UK, and in the USA. As well as producing content, his company also developed Interactive Electronic Technical Publications for viewing on screen.
In 2004 he decided to take early retirement from the commerce side of the business, and return to writing. As well as producing articles and short stories for publishing on-line, he has had several books published , including his first full novel under the nom de plume of Phillip Malcolm, some of which are shown in the books tab.
Malcolm’s main interests are History (particularly from the 18th Century to date), and he is Chairman of the board that looks after a Georgian historic building in his home town of Bath. His other passions are Sport and Music, hence the additional categories on those subjects. All music blogs have now been moved to a sister site – autodiscography.co.uk
